The 21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart

By Pete Williams

A vegan diet isn’t for everyone. But Neal Barnard makes a compelling argument for it in his new book The 21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart: Boost Metabolism, Lower Cholesterol, and Dramatically Improve Your Health.

The DC-area doctor, author of a number of best-selling books, brings a slew of prominent guests to the book to proclaim its effectiveness, including actress Alicia Silverstone, former NBA player John Salley, Biggest Loser trainer Bob Harper, and actress-turned-nutrition guru Marilu Henner, who appeared on The Fitness Buff Show two years ago.

Barnard also gets a contribution from noted ultramarathoner Scott Jurek, who attributes his success to a vegan diet. “Think about what you eat, rather than what you don’t eat,” Jurek says. “Many people eliminate foods from their diet without finding healthy alternatives. I try to eat organic, locally grown, seasonal foods as much as possible. Focus on eating healthy fats, whole grains, beans, soy protein, nuts, seeds, fruits, and vegetables.”

Dr. Barnard joined us today on The Fitness Buff Show to talk about his new book. You can listen to that interview HERE.
